The Wimp

...

 

The Wimp, Tim Lowly © 1991, graphite on paper, private collection.

 

This is an homage to my friend John August Swanson whose response, as a youth, to the epithet "wimp" was to embrace it as part of his identity. John is a remarkable artist and activist.

 

Quoting Antonello da Messina's "St. Sebastian" and "Night in Bologna" by Paul Cadmus.
